This is an analysis of the book "Radicalism of the American Revolution" by Gordon Wood. It challenges how historians previously viewed the American society having been affected by the Revolution and shows that the society was actually much more swept up in the process than expected.

From the Paper:

"We Americans tend to think of our revolution as a tidy one. Well mannered and polite even. Some small spots of messy bloodshed on Bunker Hill perhaps, and all those tea leaves floating around making a mess out there in the Boston Harbor, but altogether a genteel affair. Not like the bloody, awful, soul- and country-destroying excesses of the French Revolution (its closest political cousin), or as bloody, awful soul- and country-destroying as the Russian Revolution or any number of other ones that have come since. We simply told King George that, thanks awfully, but he was no longer needed. But do keep in touch."
